Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, November 17, 2019

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick's much-anticipated NFL workout was all but scuttled Saturday when he made a last-minute venue change, and the league responded that he was a no-show.

Publicity hound clearly more interested in playing the victim than playing football. A team would have to be down to zero healthy QBs to bring him into their lockerroom.

Cool. Hope he gets signed.

Probably not. The QB roster this year is too good to bring in a middle of the pack talent with an injury history out of retirement. That's without any of the politics involved, which obviously burnt a lot of bridges. All this cost the teams was a coach flight for a scout that's on an annual salary.

Think it was around 24 teams that showed up, I mean why wouldn't they...

Hope he gets signed.

Why? Why does it matter, I mean if he's good I could understand, I hope he signs with .

But to just "hope he gets signed" is such a lazy statement, like you just want him signed for the political points or something.

I am going with he will, there are enough poor QBs in the league.

He's played at that level, though as you stated was ok once GB figured him out he was kinda mediocre at best, but that arm and a big plus, is he's a "known" quantity/quality.

NVM ...

I had some hope but this twitter comment and the attached video are exactly why he won't get hired.

Not sure about you, but I've never sounded this antagonistic at a job interview... it's almost as if he doesn't really want the job.

Almost? He's afraid to play because it would prove he's a washed-up QB that was never great to begin with. He would rather wallow in victimhood and get applauded by the wokesters.

That's right. People are sick of his moral grandstanding and pitiful "woe is me" crybaby routine.

I have no sympathy for people who ride to the game in trucks with confederate flags and wearing the flag on apparel and cheering for the horizontally displayed big flag on the field and then get triggered when someone kneels before the flag which is a sign of respect And then they use the flag in ads to raise money off of the triggered base

Stephen A. Smith gutted his actions on twitter. He waits 4 days to relocate his workout on a 3 hr notice, sets the entire workout agenda - including using his own receiving corps, shows up wearing a Kunta Kinte t-shirt, and then disses Goodell and the owners for dessert. He doesn't want to play in the NFL. He wanted his name to be trending again.

That might be more profitable for everyone.

There's so many good QB's you didn't even need to pick one up on fantasy draft. You could just stream one all year. Kaep's practice was average, average age, injury history, with a last known guaranteed price point 7x above the average QB. Oh, and politics. That's a lot of expense for a mediocre QB is a hot QB year.

His big failing in this and the misunderstanding of his supporters is in thinking the QB position is just about physical talents. It isn't. Colin was weak mentally and not a student of the game. So, as defenses adjusted to his skills, the coordinators were no longer able to hide his weaknesses. No different from Vince Young. Great talent, lazy approach to the position. I would take a 45 year old noodle armed Peyton Manning over him any day. You just need to be good enough physically, it is a mental game.

Sitz I am a Vikings fan and I would take Kap over Cousins ... don't give me that, there are plenty of good QBs in the NFL.

Kaep's practice was average,

IT was pretty pathetic though .. :)

Oh, and politics.

I was trying to be objective, it was all good until he held his own practice and BS to go along with it.

So typical, you have no idea what "profit" means, you can't even explain your own posts.

There are plenty of good QBs, it's a hot year for them in fantasy... but Cousins signed last year, so that ship sailed. Most rosters don't have room for Kaep. He costs over 10% of a team's cap. That's how you know it was a publicity stunt by most teams, they're not in a position to sign him under any circumstances for several years, but they still were going to watch the practice.
